History 

Middlebury College was not founded to give voice to any special religious, social, 
or political creed. It was indigenous, a product of 19th century democracy, financed 
from the thin purses of local citizens, and expressive of multiform culture brought 
from southern New England. 

A miller, two lawyers, a doctor, and a President of Yale University conceived the 
first plan for Middlebury College on the night of September 30, 1798. The miller 
was Gamaliel Painter, whose name the oldest college building in Vermont still bears; 
the lawyers, Seth Storrs, donor of the campus of the men’s college, and Samuel Miller 
who entertained the group at this original meeting; the doctor, Darius Matthews, a 
probate judge as well as physician; and the Yale President, the great Timothy 
Dwight. 

Some thirty log cabins and frame houses, surrounded by wilderness, comprised 
the settlement at Middlebury in 1798. No road had yet been built to the pioneer 
village. The State of Vermont as a part of the Union was only seven years old and its 
Legislature still roved from town to town for its annual meeting. Grist and saw mills, 
a few shops for mechanics and blacksmiths, a rough inn, and a brewery offered the 
principal commercial accent to the village. A church had not even been constructed. 
Still the establishment of a college, as well as a grammar school, seemed imperative to 
these immigrants from Connecticut. 

President Dwight, in his visit of a single night, helped to outline a plan for pro¬ 
cedure, but it took two years to persuade the Legislature that the request for founding 
a college in this wilderness should be honored. A charter was finally granted on 

[13] 










November 1, 1800, and Jeremiah Atwater, a Yale graduate, appointed President; 
then breaking all precedent for haste, seven students were admitted the following 
day and Middlebury was under way, lodged in a building just completed for the 
Addison County Grammar School. President Atwater and one tutor comprised the 
entire administrative and teaching staff. And under them the first student graduated 
in August, 1802. 

Greek and Latin were the piece de resistance of the curriculum in those early years. 
Mathematics—ranging from “vulgar arithmetic” to trigonometry,—history, geog- 
raphy, natural philosophy, astronomy, rhetoric, law, logic, metaphysics, and ethics 
rounded out a four-year program, with vocational purpose noted in such courses as 
navigation and surveying. A disciplinary system, based on the temper of the law of 
Moses and the text of Yale College rules and regulations, kept a student’s nose to the 
academic grindstone. As occasion for new rules of conduct arose, they were properly 
phrased, and appropriate fines attached: fifty cents for gambling, intemperance, or 
dancing; two cents for chapel absence; twelve cents for possessing firearms; for dog' 
earing a library book one cent; or twenty-five cents for re-lending a library book. 
Students were their own janitors, laid their own hearth fires, lugged their water from 
out-door cisterns, often cooked their own meals. Daily chapel prayers before dawn 
began the day and a daily chapel service at dusk ended it. 

It was distinctly a man’s college. Women were not even admitted inside the rail 
fence which surrounded the campus protectively. Yet the village of Middlebury did 
not neglect the education of women. Within three years after the men’s college was 
started a “Female Academy,” one of the first in America, was established here, and 
it was in Middlebury that Emma Hart (Willard) opened her first school for girls and 
wrote what has been called the Magna Carta for higher education of women. Although 
the College did not become coeducational for over eighty years after it was founded, 
the tradition for women’s education was strongly fixed at an early date. 

Under Jeremiah Atwater, whose fame for scholarship and discipline spread abroad, 
Middlebury was not slow in growth and that growth continued under his successors 
Henry Davis (1809-1817), and Joshua Bates (1818-1839). After an extended 
debate over whether the College should be located on Mt. Nebo (Chipman Hill), 
Aqueduct Hill, near the present Country Club, or on Storrs Hill, the latter was 
finally chosen and New College, or Painter Hall, was built in 1815 by Middlebury 
citizens, each contributing his quota of lumber, nails, glass, hardware, and cartage. 

The stone chapel was added in 1836, the peak year of enrollment during the 
century. In those thirty-six years, the College had grown nearly to the size of Harvard 
and with a comparable reputation. But during that year when success seemed most 
phenomenal, progress was suddenly stunted by awkward and blundering conflict 
over religious status. From a local dispute it flared into a County and State-wide 
controversy. The College came to be known as a stronghold of a new kind of radical 
evangelism. In three years nearly two-thirds of the students left. 

Benjamin Labaree confronted this situation in 1840 and for twenty-six years 
labored to build up the enrollment and financial standing. He pushed through several 
successful drives; Starr Hall was built in 1861 and rebuilt after a disastrous fire dur¬ 
ing the Christmas holidays of 1864. The College was beginning to regain its rank of 
the ’3o’s when the Civil War thoroughly undid most of his constructive labors. 

[14] 



During the less successful administrations of Harvey D. Kitchel (1866-1873), 
Calvin D. Hulbert (1875-1880), and Cyrus Hamlin, (1880-1885), the registrar 
tion wavered from the low sixties into the fifties and forties, touching a low of thirty' 
eight students in 1882. From that date to the present, the trend has been upward 
almost annually. 

In spite of repeated earlier appeals, women were not admitted until 1883, after 
the alumni had petitioned for the change. Eight years later the first dormitory, Battell 
Hall, was opened. The status of women as part of Middlebury College remained 
somewhat indefinite until 1902 when a State legislative act made possible the form' 
ing of a separate women’s college. 

Ezra Brainerd, who stepped from a professorship of Physics and Applied Mathe' 
matics to the presidency in 1885, did much to raise the scholastic standards of the 
College. “My ideal of a college,’’ he asserted, “is one that insists on a complete sym' 
metrical knowledge of the fundamental laws of all nature, a comprehensive survey of 
the best in all literature, and a general acquaintance with the great principles that 
should regulate all human conduct. ...” 

Working on a platform that stressed scholarship he built up Middlebury from a 
struggling institution of little academic stamina and an enrollment of forty'four to an 
influential College of well over two hundred. Under him the Starr Library (1900) 
and Warner Science Hall (1901) were constructed and the building program which 
he started was continued on a much larger scale by his successor, John M. Thomas 
(1908-1921). 

Afraid that Middlebury might become land'bound like many other colleges, 
President Thomas secured the acres on which the athletic field and women’s campus 
are now located. Battell Cottage (1908), McCullough Gymnasium (1910), Pear' 
sons Hall (1911), the Chemistry Building (1913),Hepburn Hall (1916),and the 
Mead Chapel (1916) were built in succession under his plan for expansion. One of 
his greatest contributions was making friends for the College, who contributed 
liberally of their wealth. Joseph Battell, who at his death left his mountain estate to 
Middlebury, is to be numbered foremost among these. 

In 1921 Dr. Thomas turned over to Paul D. Moody a College of nearly five hundred 
students, double the number in 1908, as well as a College immeasurably more 
wealthy in endowment and buildings. 

From the day of his inauguration, President Moody stressed Scholarship, not 
Numbers. The registration has increased appreciably, but it has been strictly 
limited, keeping a balance between the enrollment and equipment, staff, dormitories, 
and endowment. The Chateau (1925), the Music Studio (1925), Hospital (1925), 
two new wings on the Library (1928), Forest Hall (1936), Gifford Hall (1940), 
and Munroe Hall (1941) are the principal additions in buildings made during this 
administration. Since 1931 the women’s college has been officially known as “The 
Women’s College of Middlebury.” 

The specialized summer schools have grown from the modest beginning of a 
German session with a handful of students in 1915, to schools of French, Spanish, 
Italian, German, and English with a total enrollment almost as large as that of the 
regular session. A Music Center affiliated with the language schools was established 
in 1938.

Organization and Purpose 

Middlebury College and the Women’s College of Middlebury are two affiliated 
institutions, governed by the same board of Trustees, having the same president, and 
occupying many of the same buildings. Although the two Colleges are not operated 
as a coeducational unit, one curriculum is common to both, and where the subject or 
class registration do not warrant separate recitation periods, men and women attend 
the same classes. Both Colleges are commonly referred to as Middlebury; both grant the 
Bachelor of Arts degree for undergraduate work; both are privately endowed, with 
permanent funds totaling $4,250,000. 

Entrance requirements and methods of admission of the two Colleges differ as 
widely as in separate men’s and women’s institutions in other parts of New Eng¬ 
land. Living expenses vary somewhat, since the fraternities operate their own houses 
and the sororities have no residences. Women are governed by social and dormitory 
regulations entirely different from those of the men. 

Government of the two Colleges is by one self-perpetuating board of Trustees 
entitled “The President and Fellows of Middlebury College.’’ The Alumni body 
is represented by five Trustees, and an Advisory Committee elected by the Alumnae 
co-operates with the Trustees in making suggestions concerning the operation of the 
Women’s College. 

EDUCATIONAL PURPOSE 

Since its founding in 1800, Middlebury has been a College of liberal arts; this 
traditional thesis has been adapted to modern education and the curriculum is 
organized to provide students with a comprehensive and balanced knowledge of the 

[16] 









sciences, language and literature, history and philosophy, social, political, and 
economic institutions. A threefold program for each student is stressed: intensive 
work in one field of planned study, in which a student takes a comprehensive examina" 
tion during the senior year; a survey of many subjects as they relate to this field of 
concentration; the study of cultural courses to give breadth and perspective. 

The desirability of carefully mapping out one’s lifework is impressed upon all 
students, and College instructors give fully of their time and advice in aiding students 
to a wise arrangement of studies which may lead to a development of mind and 
personality as well as toward some particular field of service. 

“To College With a Purpose,” a bulletin suggesting desirable high school and 
college courses for some fifty careers, is published in two editions, for men and 
women. Any student attending or expecting to attend Middlebury should consult 
this publication. Typical among the careers for which curricular preparation is out" 
lined are: Accounting, Advertising, Architecture, Banking, Broadcasting, Business, 
Chemical Research, Dentistry, Dietetics, Diplomacy, Dramatics, Educational Ad" 
ministration, Foreign Service, Foreign Trade, Forestry, Hotel Management, Interior 
Decoration, Journalism, Law, Library Work, Medicine, Ministry, Musical Direct' 
ing, Philology, Physical Education, Psychiatry, Public Administration, Secretarial 
Work, Social Service, Statistical Work, Teaching. 

Middlebury has no vocational or professional schools and it must be borne in mind 
that little specific preparation for the above careers is offered; but courses are so out" 
lined that the liberal arts curriculum will contribute most beneficially to work in a 
chosen field. 

A vocational guidance bookshelf in the recreational reading room of the library is 
accessible to all, and furnishes further detail on preparation for prospective careers. 
Specialists in vocational work are frequently brought to the College for lectures and 
consultation, and interviews with placement officials are arranged by the Director of 
Admissions and Personnel in the men’s College and by the Dean of the Women’s 
College. 

A co-operative plan with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology enables 
students wishing specialized and advanced scientific training, as well as the liberal 
education, to spend three years at Middlebury, followed by two at the Institute. At 
the end of this period of five years the degrees from both institutions are conferred. 

SUMMER LANGUAGE SCHOOLS 

During the summer, the campus is occupied by graduate schools of French, Italian, 
and Spanish. A School of German is located at Bristol and a School of English at 
Bread Loaf. The Music Center, on the campus, serves all the Schools. Each school is 
an independent unit with a separate administrative staff, dormitories, classrooms, 
and social centers. Students are permitted to speak only a foreign language. The 
Schools have no affiliation with the regular session of the College, except that the 
Deans of the Schools are on the year'round staff. 

Following the six'week session of the School of English, a Writers’ Conference of 
two weeks is held at Bread Loaf. 

Inquiries regarding the Language Schools should be addressed to Mrs. Pamelia 
Powell, Administrative Secretary and Recorder of the Language Schools. 

[17] 



Tke Campus 

Middlebury College and the Women’s College of Middlebury are located on a 
broad hill overlooking a typical Vermont village,a wide sweep of Champlain Valley, 
the Green Mountains to the east and the Adirondacks to the west. A highway divides 
the campus, with the principal women’s dormitories on one side and the men’s on the 
other. Most of the permanent College buildings are constructed of gray limestone or 
white marble, colonial in architecture and consistent with the extensive campus 
and mountain setting. Until the entire construction plan for the Women’s College is 
completed, both men and women will continue to use the same library, recitation and 
administration halls. 

The campus is one of the largest in the world, with about 250 acres for buildings, 
athletic grounds, and Otter Creek shoreline, and a mountain campus of 15,000 acres 
including some of the highest peaks in the State. The United States Government has 
taken over the title to an adjacent area, formerly owned by the College, as part of the 
Green Mountain National Forest. Both tracts are used by students for outings, winter 
sports, and week-end trips to lodges. 

The offices of the Deans, the Registrar, the Director of Admissions for Women, 
Alumnae Secretary, and Editor are on the first floor of Painter Hall, oldest Middle¬ 
bury building. Most of the other administration offices are in Old Chapel, which also 
provides classrooms for several departments. Warner Science Hall houses the depart¬ 
ments of Physics, Geology and Geography, Biology, Drawing and Surveying; and the 
Chemistry Building, the Department of Chemistry. In Munroe Hall, to be completed 
in January 1941, the Department of Mathematics and most of the social science and 
language departments will be located. Classrooms, offices, and the library of the 
French Department are on the first floor of the Chateau. 

The headquarters for the Department of Music are in the Music Studio, where 
private rooms for vocal and instrumental practice, as well as a hall for Glee Club, 
Band, and Choir rehearsals are located. Curricular and extracurricular work con¬ 
nected with play production and public speaking is carried on in the Playhouse on 
Weybridge Street. In the McCullough Gymnasium are a basketball court, audi¬ 
torium, offices, and locker rooms. Specified hours are scheduled for the use of the 
Gymnasium by men and women. Daily assembly and Sunday vespers are held in 
Mead Memorial Chapel. 

The Starr Library contains the usual reference, reserve, and periodical rooms. In 
addition there are seminar rooms for classes, special rooms containing fine arts books 
and equipment, the Middleburiana and local history collections, and the Sheldon 
Collection of 2,500 coins. A recreational reading room is a particular feature of the 
Library. Students have free access to the main stacks which contain 131,000 volumes 
in all fields of knowledge. The Library is designated as a depository and receives 
documents for permanent preservation from the federal government. The private 
library of Dr. Julian W. Abemethy, comprising one of the best collections of Ameri¬ 
can Literature in the coimtry, is shelved in the east wing of the building. 



MEN’S RESIDENCES 

Painter, Hepburn, and Gifford Halls are the three men’s dormitories. All rooms are 
provided with single beds, mattresses, desks, chiffoniers, and chairs. Bedding, 
pillows, and other accessories are furnished by occupants. A uniform charge of $120 
a year includes janitor service, heat, and a limited amount of electricity determined 
by monthly meter readings. Two students occupy each suite of two or three rooms, 
though there are single rooms in Gifford and Painter Halls. Showers and toilet rooms 
are conveniently located on each floor. All dormitories are fireproof. 

The Freshman Commons is located in Gifford Hall and men’s social rooms in both 
Hepburn and Gifford. All members of the freshman class are required to board at the 
Commons and through a plan for rotation of seating, opportunity is offered for meet" 
ing classmates. The Commons is managed by the College Dietitian. 

In assigning rooms, preference is given to students in College in order of classes. 
A drawing for rooms is held early in May, and an advance payment of five dollars on 
room rent must be made to the Dean at that time. Incoming students desiring rooms 
may secure reservations by sending an advance deposit of five dollars to the Director 
of Admissions and Personnel. No reservations may be cancelled after August 1 with" 
out forfeiture of the deposit. Students reserving rooms are responsible for the year’s 
rent. All rooms are assigned subject to the regulations of the College as to student 
residences, and occupants are liable for any damage to the dormitory and its furnish" 
ings. The halls are ready for occupancy by students on the first day of registration 
following the summer vacation period. The Dean or a duly designated representative 
of the College has the right to inspect at any time rooms occupied by students. 

WOMEN’S RESIDENCES 

Eight residence halls and cottages of varying sizes are provided for undergraduate 
women. Those on the campus are: Forest Hall, Pearsons Hall, Battell Cottage, Hill" 
crest, Hillside Cottage, and the Chateau. The Home Management House on Wey" 
bridge Street, known as The Homestead, is a typical New England home, the interior 
of which has been remodelled so that it admirably meets the needs of Home Econom" 
ics 35. A Cooperative House on South Main Street accommodates eleven women 
who, under the direction of a member of the Home Economics Department, serve 
their own meals and care for their own rooms. 

In assigning rooms, preference is given to students in College in order of classes. 
An assignment is made about May 1. Incoming studencs cannot be assigned for a 
shorter period than one year. All rooms are subject to the regulations of the College 
as to student residences, and occupants are liable for any damage to their room or its 
furniture. The students’ rooms in each hall or cottage are single or double and are 
supplied with necessary furnishings. Application for a room in a College house 
together with $10 advance payment for room rent should be made to the Dean of 
Women. No reservations are made without this deposit. This sum will be refunded 
if the room is not desired, provided notice of withdrawal is given before August 1.

College Life 

FRESHMAN WEEK 

Directly preceding the opening of College a three-day “Freshman Week” is 
scheduled. The program, aimed to assist Freshmen in their adjustments to the College 
community, includes an informal assembly of the class on the opening evening, 
registration, receptions and social gatherings, orientation lectures, physical examina- 
tions, and training in use of the library. Each student is assigned to a faculty adviser 
who assists in making out a program of studies. 

EXTRACURRICULAR PROGRAM 

The proximity of the men’s and women’s colleges and the relatively small size of 
both permit participation in a variety of extracurricular activities by all under' 
graduates. Frequent dances, theatrical productions, intercollegiate games, debates, 
week-end mountain trips, musicals, and lectures are scheduled throughout the year. 
Both Colleges also participate in the annual Winter Carnival. 

No metropolitan entertainment is within easy access of Middlebury, but artists 
and lecturers are brought to the campus under the sponsorship of an Entertainment 
Committee, Departments, and other organizations. John Mason Brown, Pierre de 
Lanux, Robert Frost, the Hart House String Quartet, Barrere String Ensemble, Ver¬ 
mont Symphony Orchestra, Dorothy Thompson are typical of the lecturers and 
performers appearing each year.

CHAPEL SERVICES 

Students are required to attend daily chapel assemblies, conducted by the Presi¬ 
dent, as well as Sunday Vesper services led by men distinguished in educational 
fields. Among the Vesper speakers to appear during the current year are: Henry 
Hallam Tweedy, Yale Divinity School; James Lukens McConaughy, President, 
Wesleyan University; J. Edgar Park, President, Wheaton College; Charles R. 
Brown, Dean Emeritus, Yale Divinity School; Robert C. Clothier, President, 
Rutgers University; Grant Noble, Williamstown, Mass.; Paul Scherer, New York 
City; Rex Stowers Clements, Bryn Mawr, Pa.; Wilbur E. Saunders, Peddie School; 
William M. Lewis, President, Lafayette College; Leslie Glenn, Christ Church, 
Cambridge, Mass.; John M. Thomas, President, Norwich University; John T. 
Schroeder, Yale Divinity School; Halford E. Luccock, Yale Divinity School; Ralph 
C. Hutchison, President, Washington and Jefferson College; Lynn H. Hough, Dean, 
Drew University; Roswell G. Ham, President, Mt. Holyoke College. 

HEALTH MEASURES 

Under the direction of the College nurse and members of the men’s and women’s 
departments of Physical Education, the College aims to investigate and care for the 
health of each student. Every Freshman must present upon matriculation a health 
certificate signed by a physician. At least one physical examination is given each 
semester during the freshman year; measurements and records are kept and corrective 
exercises recommended when needed. The College reserves the right to ask the with¬ 
drawal of any student whose physical condition is not satisfactory. 

In the men’s college a three-hour course in physical education and hygiene is 
required of all Freshmen. Since the majority of men participate in intramural or 
intercollegiate sports, no curricular physical education requirements are made after 
the first year. 

In the Women’s College a similar three-hour course in physical education and 
hygiene is required of both Freshmen and Sophomores. An Infirmary is operated by 
the College for minor illness among the women. 

All cases of illness are reported immediately to the College nurse who co-operates 
with local physicians. Porter Hospital is fully equipped to accommodate any type of 
case. The health fee entitles each student to care either at the Hospital or the In¬ 
firmary (for women) to the amount of $42.00, with the exception of doctors’ and 
nurses’ fees. 

COLLEGE REGULATIONS 

The College furnishes each student with a pamphlet of regulations containing 
detailed information as to enrollment, attendance, scholarship, examinations, 
athletics, and student activities. The College reserves the right to exclude at any time 
students , whom because of misconduct or poor academic standing it regards as undesirable — 
without assigning any further reason therefor; in such cases the fees due or which may have been 
paid in advance to the College will not be refunded or remitted , in whole or in part, and neither 
the College nor any of its officers shall be under any liability whatsoever for such exclusion. 

ORGANIZATIONS 

Societies common to both campuses are the Combined Glee Club and Choir, 
Der Deutche Verein, El Club Espanol, the English Club, Le Cercle F rangais, the Mourn 

[21] 



tain Club, the Orchestra, Phi Beta Kappa. The weekly newspaper, Middlebury 
Campus , and the College yearbook, The Kaleidoscope, are also jointly edited and 
managed by men and women. 

MEN’S ORGANIZATIONS AND ATHLETICS 

Organizations exclusively for men are the Athletic Council, the Band, Black 
Panther Serenaders, Blue Key,Debating Team,Interfratemity Council, and Wau- 
banakee Honor Society. There are eight fraternities: Alpha Sigma Phi, Beta Kappa, 
Chi Psi, Delta Kappa Epsilon, Delta Upsilon, Kappa Delta Rho, Sigma Alpha, and 
Sigma Phi Epsilon. 

The athletic program for men includes support of varsity teams in football, base¬ 
ball, cross-country, hockey, tennis, golf, basketball, track, fencing, and winter 
sports. Competent athletic coaching is provided. One semester’s residence is 
required before students are permitted to represent the College in varsity contests. 
Intramural games are scheduled in basketball, baseball, track, golf and tennis, hand¬ 
ball, and badminton. Skiing and hockey are special features of the winter calendar. 
Guest privileges of the Middlebury Country Club golf course are available to 
students at a fee of $1.00 per semester. 

The Director of Athletics, with the Athletic Council, composed of representatives 
of the alumni, faculty, and students, supervise the sports program. The College does 
not assume legal responsibility for the expense in caring for injuries sustained by 
student athletes, while training for or participating in athletic competition. It has 
been the policy, however, to pay for expenses within reasonable limitations deter¬ 
mined by the Athletic Council. 

WOMEN’S ORGANIZATIONS AND SPORTS 

Organizations exclusively for women include: A Tempo Club, Athletic Associa¬ 
tion, Debating Club, Mortar Board, Pan-Hellenic Council, Student Union. There 
are seven national sororities: Alpha Xi Delta, Delta Delta Delta, Kappa Delta, 
Kappa Kappa Gamma, Phi Mu, Pi Beta Phi, and Sigma Kappa. 

A sports program, under the direction of the Women’s Physical Education Depart¬ 
ment and the Women’s Athletic Association, includes field hockey, volleyball, 
archery, badminton, basketball, winter sports, baseball, riding, golf, and tennis. 
Guest privileges of the Middlebury Country Club golf course are available to 
students at a fee of $1.00 per semester. 

STUDENT GOVERNMENT 

The men’s undergraduate body is governed by the Student Government Associa¬ 
tion, in which all students have a vote. There are executive, legislative and judicial 
branches of the Association. Each residence is represented in a Student Assembly. 

The Student Union, to which all undergraduate women belong, controls the con¬ 
duct of students in all matters of college life not under the jurisdiction of the Faculty. 
It aims to further a spirit of campus unity, to co-ordinate and control extracurricular 
activities, to encourage high standards of responsibility and co-operation, and to 
maintain the social standards of the College.

Admissions 

Requirements and procedure for admission to Middlebury College and the 
Women’s College of Middlebury differ materially, as they do very commonly in 
separate men’s and women’s institutions. Applicants should note the requirements 
common to both Colleges and the specific requirements for men and women. Men 
wishing to enter should address correspondence to Mr. E. J. Wiley, Director of 
Admissions and Personnel, Middlebury College; women to Miss Mary Williams, 
Director of Admissions, Women’s College of Middlebury. 

In both Colleges, the Freshman class is limited by the capacity of the dormitories. 
This limit in the men’s college is approximately 160, in the women’s college 100. 
Preference is given to those who present a carefully planned and welHntegrated 
high school program. 

Admission is selective; ability, personality, character, and general recommenda' 
tions are as carefully considered as the school record and scores on scholastic aptitude 
and achievement tests. A satisfactory certificate of health must be presented. A per- 
sonal interview with the Director of Admissions of the respective College, or some 
representative designated by the offices, is ordinarily required. Rooms are assigned 
in order of applications accepted. 

Students may enter by certification, College Board examinations, or a combination 
of both. The definition of requirements of the College Entrance Examination Board 
is accepted as a standard for requirements in the various subjects. 

Neither College gives entrance examinations. 

A student satisfying an instructor of fitness to do so, may take a qualifying examina- 
tion in any subject of the Freshman year, which, if passed, will be accepted as 

[23] 



















prerequisite to the succeeding course, but will not entitle the student to college 
credit for the examination so passed. 

Certification. Candidates applying for entrance by certificate must be from ap- 
proved secondary schools, listed either by the New England College Entrance Cer¬ 
tificate Board, the Board of Regents of the State of New York, or some other state or 
regional accrediting association, acceptable to the Middlebury Committee on 
Admissions. 

Schools in New England not upon the approved list of the New England College 
Entrance Certificate Board, but meeting its requirements in respect to curriculum, 
teaching staff, and equipment, may, for the purpose of showing their standard of cer¬ 
tification, send one or more students on certificate, if arrangements for so doing are 
concluded with the Board before April 1. Inquiries on this subject may be addressed 
to Dean William L. Machmer, Secretary of the Board, Massachusetts State College, 
Amherst, Mass. 

Students who have passed the examinations of the College Entrance Examination 
Board, or of the Board of Regents of the State of New York with satisfactory grades, 
will be credited upon certificate for all such examinations. 

Special Certification. Students who have graduated from any approved high 
school in the first third of the class and whom their principals will certify upon the 
general record of their courses rather than in individual subjects may be admitted 
provided they have satisfied the fifteen units as specified by the respective College. 
It is understood that in granting special certification for the preparatory work of 
any student, the Principal assumes the same obligation as for regular certification. 

Examinations of College Entrance Board. Men and women may enter by passing 
examinations of the College Entrance Examination Board. These will be given in 
1941 from June 14-21 at over three hundred points in this country and abroad. A list 
of these places will be published about March 1, 1941. Requests that the examina¬ 
tions be held at particular points should be transmitted to the Secretary of the 
College Entrance Examination Board not later than February 1, 194^* 

Detailed definitions of the requirements in all examination subjects are given in a 
circular of information published annually about December 1. Upon request to the 
Secretary of the College Entrance Examination Board a single copy of this document 
will be sent to any teacher without charge. In general, there will be a charge of thirty 
cents, which may be remitted in postage. 

All candidates wishing to take these examinations should make application by 
mail to the Secretary of the College Entrance Examination Board, 431 West 117th 
Street, New York, N. Y. Blank forms for this purpose will be mailed by the Secre¬ 
tary of the Board to any teacher or candidate upon request by mail. 

The applications and fees of all candidates who wish to take the examinations in 
June, 1941, should reach the Secretary of the Board not later than the dates specified 
in the following schedule: For examination centers: 

In the United States west of the Mississippi River or in Canada May 19, 1941 
Outside of the United States and Canada except in Asia May 5, 1 94 1 
In China or elsewhere in the Orient April 21, 1941 

An application which reaches the Secretary later than the scheduled date will be 
accepted only upon payment of $5 in addition to the regular examination fee of $10. 

[24] 



Progressive Education Association. Middlebury is co- operating for an experimental 
period with the Progressive Education Association. In considering candidates from 
the schools approved by this Association, exceptions to the usual requirements for 
admission may be made. 

SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS FOR MEN 

Special requirements for men are in addition to general admission requirements above for both 
colleges. 

Admission procedure. All inquiries with regard to admissions should be addressed 
to the Director of Admissions and Personnel. He will supply necessary admission 
forms to the applicant, and upon receipt of an application for admission will submit 
certificate forms directly to the principal of the preparatory school. Other forms are 
sent to the applicant’s references. 

Early application is advisable, since the enrollment in the freshman class is 
limited. A tentative choice of applicants is made by a series of selections. The first 
is made by the Committee on Admission about the middle of March, at which time 
records of applicants through the first half of the senior year are usually available. 
The applicant is informed as soon as he is accepted, but final action is not taken on the 
application until the preparatory school record is complete. Ordinarily the tentative 
acceptance becomes final as soon as the candidate successfully completes the work 
of the senior year. 

Certification . Fifteen units are necessary for entrance by certificate, distributed 
as follows: three required units in English, nine optional units made up from ancient 
or modern languages, mathematics, history, natural science and social science; and 
three free choice units from other approved preparatory school subjects. 

In special cases a passing grade in the free choices may be accepted from candidates 
showing outstanding preparation in the required and optional units, but the Com' 
mittee on Admission must be satisfied, on the basis of all the information available, 
that the candidate is qualified to pursue a college course. 

A unit ordinarily refers to a full year’s work in one subject, except English where 
three miits are given for four years’ work. Those who contemplate doing advanced 
work in English or a foreign language are advised to present three or preferably four 
years of Latin. Those who contemplate college work in mathematics, chemistry, 
physics, or economics should present three or four years of mathematics. For the 
M.I.T. plan four years of mathematics are advisable. There are several fields of study 
for which subjects recommended above are not essential, but those who include these 
subjects in their preparatory program will have a wider range of choice. 

Examination. Those who desire to enter entirely by examination may make appli' 
cation for admission on the basis of Plan B (examinations in four fundamental sub' 
jects, and the scholastic aptitude test), given by the College Entrance Examination 
Board at convenient points. Information on subjects to be chosen for Plan B examina' 
tions may be secured by application to the Director of Admissions and Personnel. 

Certification and Examination • Students from approved schools (as previously 
defined) who have only partial certification totaling eight units or more may make up 
deficiencies by taking “College Board’’ examinations covering the units in which 
they are not certified. No total certification for less than eight units will be con' 
sidered, but the eight units need not all be from the same school. 

[25] 



SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS FOR WOMEN 

Special requirements for women are in addition to general admission requirements listed 
above for both colleges . 

Procedure. Inquiries with regard to admissionto the Women’s College of Middle- 
bury should be addressed to the Director of Admissions. Forms of application will 
be furnished on request. Since many more applications are received than can be 
accepted, it is recommended that women apply a year or more in advance. 

An application fee of $5 to cover the cost of registration must be paid by every 
candidate for admission to the Women’s College, and no application is considered 
until this fee is received. This fee is not returnable under any circumstances but 
if the applicant is accepted and enters, the fee will be deducted from the first 
semester bill. In case an applicant postpones her entrance into college, the appli¬ 
cation fee may be transferred to a later year. 

Certificate forms for the secondary school record are sent to the Principal of the 
school. Tentative choice of applicants will be made as soon as possible after the 
first of May. Applicants whose entrance credits have been approved are required to 
fill out medical blanks which are supplied by the College. No candidate is finally 
admitted until the preparatory record is complete and the health requirements met. 

Every candidate for admission to the Women’s College is required to take the 
Scholastic Aptitude Test of the College Entrance Examination Board. It is recom¬ 
mended that this test be taken during the junior year in secondary school. If this is 
not possible, the test should be taken in April of the senior year unless the candidate 
is taking subject-matter examinations in June. The report of the results of the test is 
sent directly to the College, and the exact score is not revealed to the candidate. 

Application to take the Scholastic Aptitude Test should be made directly to the 
Secretary of the College Entrance Examination Board, 431 West 117th Street, 
New York, N. Y. The fee for the Scholastic Aptitude Test alone is $5 in April. If the 
test is taken in connection with other examinations in June, no additional fee is 
required; if taken alone the fee is $10. 

Detailed information concerning the April series, including dates and examination 
centers, is printed in a separate bulletin which will be mailed to any address by the 
Secretary of the College Entrance Examination Board upon receipt of a written 
request. 

For admission, the applicant must present fifteen units. A unit represents a year’s 
study in any subject in a secondary school, the class meeting four or five times a week; 
it constitutes approximately a fourth of the work which the student ordinarily 
carries in a school year. In English, however, but three units of entrance credit are 
given for the work of four years. Of the fifteen units required for entrance, eleven or 
twelve are prescribed; the remaining four or three are elective. 

The prescribed units are: 


English (4 years) 
Foreign Language 

History 

Algebra 

Plane Geometry 
Laboratory Science 


3 units 

3 units in one and 2 in 
another, or 4 units in one 
1 unit 
1 unit 
1 unit 
1 unit 


[26] 



The electives are to be chosen from the subjects listed as follows: 


Language History Science 

Latin Ancient History Mathematics 

Greek European History Chemistry 

French English History Physics 

German American History Biology 

Italian Physical Geography 

Spanish Botany 

Zoology 

With the approval of the Committee on Admissions, however, some other subject or subjects 
may be substituted in the electives listed. 

No candidate is admitted with conditions. 


General Science is not accepted as satisfying the Laboratory Science requirement, and no entrance 
credit is allowed for less than two years of a foreign language. Candidates interested in English or a 
Foreign Language are advised to present three and preferably four years of Latin. 

Candidates interested in Mathematics, Chemistry, Physics, or Economics should be able to 
present three years of Mathematics (Elementary and Intermediate Algebra and Plane Geometry). 


Examination. Students desiring to make up deficiencies in certification by examin- 
ation, or to enter by examination alone may make use of the examinations given by the 
College Entrance Examination Board. 

Those wishing to enter entirely by examination may make application for ad- 
mission either on the basis of Plan B (examinations in four fundamental subjects and 
the Scholastic Aptitude Test) or Plan C. Information on subjects to be chosen for 
either Plan B or Plan C may be secured by application to the Director of Admissions. 

ADVANCED STANDING 

Only a limited number of men and women can be accepted by transfer from other 
Colleges and Universities and all such students must come from approved institutions 
of collegiate rank. A candidate for admission to advanced standing should present a 
detailed transcript of his work in the institution previously attended, including a 
list of preparatory subjects accepted by that institution, and a statement of honorable 
dismissal. JS [o student who has been separated from another institution for reasons of scholarship 
will be granted any academic favor that would not be extended by the institution from which the 
separation was made. Transfer students are not admitted to senior standing. 

Applicants for admission to advanced standing are expected to meet the same 
standards with regard to curricular preparation, character, and personality that 
apply to candidates for admission to the freshman class. Women are required to take 
the Scholastic Aptitude Test of the College Entrance Examination Board, if they 
have not already done so. 

All students transferring from other institutions are given provisional class ranking 
for their first year. At the close of this period their credits are adjusted and it is 
understood that in making the adjustment the quality of the work done at Middle- 
bury is taken into consideration. In order to receive credit at Middlebury for work 
done elsewhere a student should have obtained a grade of at least 70 per cent on a 
scale comparable to that in use at Middlebury, in each course for which credit is 
desired. This applies both to transfer students and to regular Middlebury students 
who attend the summer sessions of other institutions.

Expenses and Scliolarskips 

No general statement can be made regarding the cost of a year at Middlebury. The 
location of the College in frugal Vermont countryside and the absence of metropolitan 
attractions permit a student to live economically. The College supplies a number of 
needy and deserving students with scholarships and the Deans attempt to assist 
undergraduates in finding remunerative work both on the campus and in town. 

Fixed annual charges for both men and women: 


Tuition.. • ... • • • • $ 35 °-°° 

Special laboratory fees (see course descriptions). $2.00 to 12.00 

Undergraduate publications. 7.00 

Health fee. 10.00 

Undergraduate Association or Student Union fee. 1 • 5 ° 

Lecture fee. 2.00 

Class dues. 1.00 

Additional fixed charges for men: 

Room rent, including heat and electricity (limited). $120.00 

Board at Gifford Hall. 250.00 

Athletic and Gymnasium fee. 20.00 

Additional fixed charges for women: 

Room and board. $400.00 

Athletic and Gymnasium fee. 10.00 


A charge of $35.00 per semester is made for each extra course. 

A graduation fee of $11.00 is paid by all seniors. 

A rebate of $5.00 per week is allowed for absence from dining halls for two weeks or longer. 

No refund of tuition is made for absence, withdrawal, or dismissal except for continued illness. 

Students may not take examinations, receive credits, nor expect honorable dismissal until all 
accounts are paid in full. 

The right is reserved to change quoted charges if necessary to meet actual costs. 

The College assumes no responsibility for loss of student property through fire or theft. 

With the help of the list of standard charges, the individual should be able to 
estimate approximate expenses for the year. Travel, textbooks, clothing, fraternity 
or sorority dues, and social assessments should also be considered. 

Bills are payable by semesters. All students entering for the first time are required 
to make an initial deposit of $ 100.00 on their semester bill at the time of registration. 
All others are required each semester to pay arrears and to make a deposit of at least 
$50.00 on their new accounts before they are permitted to enter classes. Semester 
bills will be given to students on or before November first and March first respec¬ 
tively for the first and second semesters. All bills must be settled in full or satisfactory 
arrangements made at the Treasurer’s office by November tenth and March tenth 
respectively for the first and second semesters. A certificate of deposit from the 
Treasurer’s office and a class card are required before the student is allowed to 
attend classes. 

The Registrar will issue a transcript of record on request to students wishing to 
transfer or to secure a statement of their credits for any other purpose. One copy of 
the College record is furnished free. A fee of one dollar will be charged for a duplicate 
of the transcript. In the case of students who have received scholarship aid or who are 
financially indebted to the College, however, no transcript will be issued until 
satisfactory arrangements have been made at the Treasurer’s office. 

[28] 















UNDERGRADUATE EMPLOYMENT 

The College cannot guarantee employment to students and does not encourage them 
to enter without adequate resources. A limited number of men may expect to find 
such employment as waiting on tables, assisting in laboratories and offices, serving as 
janitors, and tutoring. An employment bureau is conducted by the office of the Dean 
of Men. However, prior to matriculation, men should address communications com 
cerning employment to the Director of Admissions and Personnel. 

Women may find similar employment including dining room and kitchen service 
in the dormitories, house duty, light housework in faculty homes, caring for children, 
typewriting and clerical work, tutoring, and serving as monitors. A minimum saving 
of $150.00 in board may be made by eleven women who prepare and serve their own 
meals under the direction of a member of the Home Economics Department at the 
Co-operative House. Application should be made to the office of the Dean of The 
Women’s College. 


SCHOLARSHIPS 

Scholarships of $100.00, $120.00, and $150.00 are available to a limited number 
of deserving students who present satisfactory credentials and who would be unable 
to attend College without this assistance. These grants may be applied only to 
tuition. No scholarships are offered for participation in sports or other extracurricular 
activities; however, the student’s record as a campus citizen is taken into considera¬ 
tion along with academic record and family circumstances in considering applica¬ 
tions. 

Correspondence concerning scholarships for incoming men should be addressed 
to the Director of Admissions and Personnel, who will furnish application blanks. 
Upper classmen should apply to the Dean of Men. 

Women should apply to the Dean of The Women’s College for scholarship aid. 

Scholarships may be forfeited at any time through negligence or misconduct. If a 
student fails in any semester to have a passing grade in four courses, of which three 
shall be at least of 70 per cent grade, any scholarship allowance for that semester is 
thereby forfeited, and is immediately payable to the College. 

Students holding a scholarship, who wish to transfer to another institution are 
required to refund the full amount of back tuition applied as scholarship aid. 

Scholarship funds permanently retain their identity, as shown in the appendix but 
scholarships are not ordinarily given by specific title. Titled scholarships should be 
applied for only in the instances listed below. No student may receive both a State 
Scholarship and a Special Vermont Scholarship. 

State Scholarships. The College receives from the State of Vermont an annual appropriation of 
$7,200 for the payment to the amount of $120 annually of the tuition and incidental College 
charges of sixty students, two being appointed each year by each Senator in the General Assembly, 
from his respective county, provided any suitable candidate should apply therefor; otherwise from 
any county in the State. Any Vermont student desiring to take advantage of a State scholarship 
should apply to one of the Senators of the county in which he or she resides, and the Senator may 
thereupon give a certificate of appointment. Should the Senators in the applicant’s county already 
have made appointments, the student should immediately apply to the Dean, as there may be a 
vacancy from some other county; incoming Freshmen should make such application to the Director 
of Admissions. The same regulations as to forfeiture through misconduct, poor scholarship, or un' 
satisfactory attendance apply to State Scholarships as to student benefits owned by the College. 

[29] 



Charles A. Field Scholarship. $300, given by the village of Proctor, Vt., “as a memorial of 
regard for Fletcher Dutton Proctor and of gratitude to him, and for courtesies received at the hands 
of other residents of said village.” 

Agnes Warner Sunderland Fund. $3,000. Established by Edwin S. S. Sunderland, Esq., class 
of 1911, the income from which is first available for the assistance of students from Cornwall. 

Presser Foundation Music Scholarships Fund. $250 is received annually from the Presser 
Foundation to be divided among several promising students of music. Information may be secured 
from the Chairman of the Music Department. 


Special Scholarships for Male Residents of Vermont. Ten scholarships of $1,000 each for the 
four year course ($250 a year) were established in 1930, subject to the conditions stated below, 
based on the general plan of the Rhodes Scholarships, and given to male residents of Vermont who 
show greatest promise in: qualities of manhood, force of character and leadership; literary and 
scholastic ability and attainments; and physical vigor, as shown by interest in outdoor sports or in 
other ways. 

The school record and personal references from principal and other citizens of standing in the 
community are considered in making the selection. All applicants (unless otherwise advised by the 
committee) come to Middlebury for scholastic aptitude test, general intelligence examination, and 
personal interview with the committee of selection, which consists of the President, two members 
of the Board of Trustees, the Dean and the Director of Admissions. The scholarship is tenable for 
four consecutive years subject to the maintenance of a high standing and a general record in College 
which is satisfactory to the committee. Application should be made to Mr. E. J. Wiley on or before 
April 15. 


The Emma Willard Scholarship. $2,000, established in 1895 by the Emma Willard Associa- 
tion, for the benefit of deserving young women. The holder of this scholarship receives a supple¬ 
mentary scholarship bringing the total up to $350, or remission of tuition. For Seniors only. 

The Joseph Battell Scholarships. $500 annually, for young women of Addison County. 

Grace Hathaway Scholarship for Women. The cost of one year’s study of a practical course in 
Music is offered to an undergraduate woman by the A Tempo club. 


George Ellis Fellowships. Two fellowships, each with an annual value of $1,600, were 
established at Columbia University in 1931, under a provision in the will of George W. Ellis, to 
be open primarily to residents of Vermont or to the graduates of Middlebury, Norwich, and the 
University of Vermont. The fellowships are awarded to qualified men or women for pursuing 
advanced or graduate study in any of the faculties or schools at Columbia. Information on this 
fellowship may be secured from Professor H. G. Owen. 

LOAN FUNDS 

To defray expenses specifically pertaining to College education, loans in moderate 
amounts for a limited time may be made to students through the Committee on 
Extensions and Loans. The applicant is required to furnish information regarding 
the purpose of the loan, any standing obligations to the College and to other sources, 
the amount of financial aid received from parents or guardian, the total earned toward 
yearly College expenses, and the amount of life insurance carried. Terms for repay¬ 
ment of loan are required, and the application must be accompanied by an endorse¬ 
ment of parent or guardian and a recommendation from the Dean. No loans are 
granted to Freshmen. Application should be made to the Deans. 

PRIZES 

Prizes are awarded for annual public speaking and debating contests, for theses 
on peace and the United States Constitution, and for distinguished work in Biblical 
literature, Latin, Greek, English, and History. Full details are given in the Ap¬ 
pendix.

Curriculum 

Middlebury College and the Women’s College of Middlebury both confer the 
one degree, Bachelor of Arts. To obtain the variety of interests and breadth of view 
which graduation from a college of liberal arts implies, undergraduates are urged to 
distribute their selection of courses wisely. Students should plan their four years of 
work, bearing in mind that a comprehensive examination must be taken at the end of 
the senior year covering all the subjects in which major work was done. The Bulletin 
“To College With a Purpose,” which presents desirable programs for various 
careers, should be studied with care. 

Previous to the opening of College, all Freshmen are furnished with pre^registra' 
tion cards on which they designate their advance selection of courses for the first 
year. During Freshman Week, each student is assigned a faculty adviser who gives 
further individual assistance in planning a course of study. During the second week 
in May, faculty advisers make appointments with their advisees and form a tentative 
program for the remainder of the College course. 

The first two days of the college year, Tuesday and Wednesday, are given over to 
registration. All students are required to enroll and register their election of courses 
in the gymnasium on one of these days. For the second semester, registration must be 
completed at the Registrar’s office on or before the Friday preceding it. A charge of 
$5 will be made for each enrollment after the days assigned for registration. The 
schedule of courses must be endorsed by the advisers before the Registrar will submit 
class cards to the instructors. 

The normal number of courses of study required of each student in a given year is 

[31] 











five. These may be year-courses or their equivalent in semester courses. In order for 
Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors to take six courses they must have attained an 
average of 80 per cent in all work of the previous year; to take seven courses, 90 per 
cent. A charge of $35 a semester is made for each extra course. 


ORGANIZATION OF COURSES 


Undergraduate work is reckoned in semester hours and courses. A semester hour 
means one period of class work per week for one semester. All courses, unless other- 
wise stated, are conducted three hours a week, so that the normal amount of class¬ 
room work required is fifteen recitation hours a week, exclusive of preparation. 
Laboratory courses require double periods, each double period usually counting the 
same as one hour of recitation. 

While the amount of time required for thorough preparation differs in different 
studies and for different students, every student should allow at least two hours for 
the preparation of each hour of recitation; the best results of collegiate training can¬ 
not be expected from less. 

The departments are arranged in three groups as follows: 


Language Division 

American Literature 

Drama and Public Speaking 

English 

French 

German 

Greek 

Italian 

Latin 

Spanish 


Social Science Division 
Contemporary Civilization 
Economics 

Education and Psychology 

Fine Arts 

History 

Music 

Philosophy 

Physical Education 

Political Science 

Sociology 


Natural Science Division 

Biology 

Chemistry 

Drawing and Surveying 
Geology and Geography 
Home Economics 
Mathematics 
Physics 


In each semester of the freshman year the election of History of English Literature 
and Contemporary Civilization is prescribed by faculty regulation. The remaining 
three courses are free electives and may be chosen from any subjects open to Fresh¬ 
men. At present these include introductory courses in Biology, Chemistry, History, 
Home Economics, Mathematics, Music, Political Science, and any of the ancient or 
modern languages. Those who have taken a modem language in high school and have ac¬ 
quired satisfactory preparation may continue the subject in intermediate or advanced 
courses. Freshmen may take practical work in music but without college credit. 

In any modem language, students of any class will be assigned to those courses for 
which, in the judgment of the instructor, they are best fitted. 

At the end of the freshman year each student, in consultation with a faculty adviser, 
determines upon a Field of Planned Study to be pursued through the remaining three 
years. A Field of Planned Study is a group of courses so planned as to form an in¬ 
tegrated and coherent whole, attention being paid to the advantageous sequence of 
courses within a department and to the co-ordination of courses in different depart¬ 
ments. As a rule each Field of Planned Study centers around some one department 
which sponsors the plan, the courses in that department being designated the major, 
those in other departments being called cognate courses. The total amount of work 
comprehended in any Field of Planned Study is not less than 48 and not more than 7 2 
semester hours beyond the work of the freshman year, and not more than one half of 
the courses in any plan are to be in the major department, except in the case of a joint 


[ 3 2 ] 




major. A joint major is the basis of a Field of Planned Study sponsored by two depart' 
ments which cooperate for that purpose, in which case two'thirds of the work may 
be divided between those departments. Each department having facilities for major 
work publishes one or more Fields of Planned Study based upon work in that 
department as a major, and in addition may draft individual plans to meet the needs 
of students having special interests not met by any of the regular plans. 

The student’s adviser for the freshman year, or the Dean, or both, will act as con' 
sultants in facilitating the wise selection of a Field of Planned Study. When one has 
been definitely chosen, a permanent adviser for the remainder of the college course is 
assigned to the student by and from the department sponsoring the plan chosen. 

The following regulations are prescribed for the choice of studies after the first 
year, and each student before graduation shall meet these requirements as to a major 
and the distribution of work. 

1. At the end of the freshman year a major study shall be elected and not less than 
twenty'four nor more than thirty'six hours in that department shall be completed 
beyond the work of the freshman year. 

2. Completion of not less than twenty'four nor more than thirty'six hours beyond 
the work of the freshman year in such cognate courses in various departments as the 
major department may specify in order to have a unified field of study. 

3. The student shall complete a minimum of twelve hours in each group and shall 
not take more than eighty'four in any one. 

Freshmen may not elect more than one course in a department in a semester, Soph' 
omores not more than two, and Juniors and Seniors not more than three. The total 
amount of work in any department may not exceed forty'two hours. 

A Sophomore who for any reason is not satisfied with the first choice of a major 
may at the end of the year change to another subject, but assurance should first be 
obtained from the department to which the change is proposed that the student will 
be able to meet its requirements in the remaining two years. After the close of the 
sophomore year changes in a major subject will be allowed only for exceptional 
reasons and with the consent of the major adviser. 

No change in studies will be allowed during the first week of classroom work ex' 
cept by permission of the Chief Adviser. During the second week of classroom work 
a change may be made only with the permission of the Chief Adviser and the In' 
structor involved, and the payment of a fee of $5. For making a change during the 
third week of classroom work a fee of $1 o will be required. The fee in each case must 
be paid to the Registrar before the new Admittance Card is given to the Instructor. 
After the third week of classroom work no change may be made except within a 
department and upon the initiative of the Instructor. 

No refund of fees for extra courses will be allowed after the second full week of 
the semester. 

The completion of 40 semester courses of 3 hours each per week, or their equivalent 
in year courses, is required for a degree. The final year of work must be taken at 
Middlebury College, except as provided in the co'ordinated plan with Massachusetts 
Institute of Technology. 


[33] 




SCHOLARSHIP 

Scholarship is graded on the scale of 100 per cent, 60 per cent being passing. 
Grades are to be interpreted as follows: A grade from 90 to 100 represents the most 
exceptional brilliance, thorough and consistent industry, and a broad understanding 
of the background of the course. A grade from 80 to 89 is an honor grade, and repre- 
sents the work of those students who by greater ability, greater powers of applica¬ 
tion, better backgrounds, or all of these, are able clearly to distinguish themselves 
from the majority of students. A grade from 7 o to 7 9 represents satisfactory work and 
can be attained only by the best efforts of the average student. This grade will be used 
more frequently than any other. A grade from 60 to 69 represents doubt of the 
instructor as to whether the student is profiting by the course. This grade may be due 
to lack of industry or lack of ability; it represents the border line between satisfactory 
work and failure. 

A grade below 60 represents a failure to meet the responsibilities of the course. 

For tentative grades of “incomplete” and “absent,” see the College Handbook. 

Reports of standing are made at the end of each semester. At these times notices of 
failures are sent to both students and parents. 

Not more than eight semester grades below 70 per cent may be counted toward 
the degree. 

A student credited with the equivalent of eight semester courses at the beginning 
of the college year will be ranked as a Sophomore for that year; with 18, a Junior; 
with 28, a Senior. 

Not more than six semester hours can be attained by an undergraduate at a Summer 
Session. Proportionate credit, however, will be allowed for work in summer sessions 
or summer quarters at other institutions where the period of summer work is longer 
than six weeks. In order to receive credit at Middlebury for work done elsewhere a 
student should attain a grade of at least 70, on a scale comparable to that in use at 
Middlebury, in each course in which he wishes to receive credit. 

EXAMINATIONS 

Many courses are offered in year rather than semester units and final examinations 
on the whole year’s work are given in June. When half-year courses are listed, final 
examinations are given at the end of each semester. The faculty requires that at least 
two definite examinations of one hour or more in length be given in each semester 
course, and in each semester of all year courses; one of these two, however, may be 
the final examination. 

A student inexcusably absent from an examination will be failed. A student un¬ 
avoidably absent from College at the time set by the Registrar for taking the examina¬ 
tion will be given an opportunity immediately upon the return to College or before 
the beginning of the corresponding semester of the following year. If one fails to 
meet this requirement, the course must be repeated with the following class if the 
subject is a required one. 

COMPREHENSIVE EXAMINATIONS 

At the end of the senior year every student must pass a general examination testing 
comprehensive knowledge of the subject in which major work was chosen and cover¬ 
ing all of the requirements in that department. A passing grade of 60 per cent in this 

[ 34 ] 



is required for graduation. This examination is divided into not less than two parts 
of at least two hours each, and given a week or more before the beginning of final 
examinations. Each department may require related courses in other departments, 
as part of the material of the general examination. 

Students majoring in a modem language should have the ability to understand, 
speak, and write the language easily and should have acquired a knowledge of the 
history and civilization, the chief authors and main currents in the literature of the 
country. 

A student who fails to pass the comprehensive may not take a second examination 
until the following May. 

Students who pass the comprehensive with a grade of 75 per cent may, at the 
discretion of the department, be excused from final course examinations in any or all 
courses that may fall within, the field of concentration, including allied courses 
accepted for this purpose. It is understood, however, that no student is excusedTrom 
any other requirement in courses. 

Departments assist students in organizing and co-ordinating their material for the 
comprehensive examinations by individual conferences, group seminars, series of 
lectures, reading lists and syllabi, sample examinations, or senior co-ordinating 
courses. Seniors elect four courses instead of five during the second semester; three 
credits are given for informal reading and the comprehensive examinations. 

The purpose of the comprehensive examination requirement is to put the emphasis 
on the assimilation of knowledge and on the acquisition of a broad and deep compre¬ 
hension of the student’s major subject, both in the various phases of the subject itself 
and also in its relation to other branches of knowledge. The required and recom¬ 
mended courses indicated by each department are a guide to the material to be 
covered by the examination. Instead of the mere accumulation of points from a certain 
number of isolated courses passed, the Middlebury Bachelor’s Degree represents a 
unified body of intellectual experience, gathered and assimilated over a period of 
four years, and correlated for practical application to intellectual problems. 

DEPARTMENTAL HONORS 

As an incentive to such students as have the ability to do more than should be 
required of the majority, and to promote and encourage individual investigation in 
the various departments of the curriculum, the faculty has established a system of 
honors. These are divided into two classes, Honors and High Honors, and are 
subject to the following regulations: 

1. Honors must be sought in the department in which the candidate is con¬ 
centrating and at the end of his course his application for Honors must have the 
unanimous recommendation of the department. 

2. The candidate shall announce the intention of working for Honors to the head 
of the department concerned at a time not later than the registration period at the 
beginning of the senior year. It is urgently recommended, however, that the candidate 
consult with the departmental head at as early a time as possible in order that the 
requirements for Honors in the department concerned may be thoroughly understood 
and completely met. 

3. Each candidate for Honors shall be required to pass, by unanimous vote of the 

[ 35 ] 





entire department concerned, a special comprehensive examination to be devised and 
administered by the department in which Honors are sought and as specified in 
Section 6 that follows. Each department shall issue at least one year before the date 
set for the special examination a statement of the material on which the examination 
shall be based and shall have the right to include such special requirements as seem 
suitable* such as complementary courses in allied departments, etc. 

4. In order to secure Honors a student must have obtained an average rank of not 
less than 80 per cent in the department in which Honors are sought; a general 
average of not less than 80 per cent in the entire college course; and a grade of 85 per 
cent in the special comprehensive examination. In order to secure High Honors the 
student must obtain an average rank of not less than 90 per cent in the department in 
which High Honors are sought; a general average of not less than 85 per cent in the 
entire college course; and a grade of 90 per cent in the special comprehensive 
examination. 

5. Candidates for Honors are expected to consult frequently with departmental 
heads concerning their progress in fulfilling requirements and in general concerning 
their preparation for the special comprehensive examination. 

6. Candidates for Honors shall be required to take the regular departmental com' 
prehensive examination with the addition of sufficient examination material to test 
the candidate’s special preparation in his Honors work. It should be understood that 
this additional material with the regular departmental comprehensive examination 
shall constitute in effect a special examination. Should the candidate be unsuccessful 
in passing this examination the grade shall be recorded and the candidate shall then 
be given a grade for a regular comprehensive examination. Such candidates will 
be subject to the usual requirements governing the regular comprehensive exami' 
nation required of all students. 

These honors will be printed on the Commencement program and in the next 
annual Catalogue, and will be certified to, when requested, by a written certificate 
from the Registrar and the professor of the department, stating the nature and quality 
of the extra work done. 

The degree of A.B. is conferred cum 1 audc upon those who have attained an average 
rank, for the entire course, of 85 to 90 per cent; magna cum l audc if that rank is 90 to 
95 per cent; summa cum l audc if it is 95 per cent or above. 

HONORARY APPOINTMENTS 

The faculty, under the direction of the Corporation, give honorary Commence' 
ment appointments: to the senior of each college attaining highest rank, the appoint' 
ment of Valedictorian, and to the second in rank, the appointment of Salutatorian. 

PHI BETA KAPPA 

The Middlebury Chapter of Phi Beta Kappa Society is the Beta of Vermont. 
Members of each senior class, who have attained an average rank of 89 per cent for 
six semesters, or an average rank of 8 7 3^2 per cent for eight semesters are eligible for 
membership, up to a maximum of 15 per cent of the class in both colleges.

Graduate Work 

Middlebury College provides courses in certain departments for students desiring 
to pursue a Master’s degree. The departments offering graduate work are listed under 
paragraph 15. Correspondence should be directed to Prof. Harry G. Owen, Chair' 
man of the Committee on Graduate Work. 

The degrees of Master of Arts and of Master of Science may be attained by graduate 
work completed during the regular college year, or at the Summer Sessions, in accord' 
ance with the following regulations: 

1. The candidate must have a baccalaureate degree from this College, or from 
another institution whose course of study and requirements for graduation are 
approved by the Committee on Graduate Work. 

2. To obtain the degree of Master of Arts, or Master of Science, one full year in 
residence and the completion of work equivalent to thirty semester hours will be 
necessary. This requirement of residence may also be met by attendance at the 
Summer Sessions. Not more than eight semester hours may be secured at a single 
Summer Session; and not more than six semester hours in a European Section of the 
Summer Session. 

3. To obtain either of the advanced degrees two'thirds of the required work must 
be completed at Middlebury College. 

4. Graduate work done in other institutions, and presented for transfer credit 
towards the Middlebury Master’s degree, must be acceptable towards the same 
degree at the institution where the work was done. 

5. Candidates should register during the first week of either semester, or during 
the first week of the Summer Session. A renewal of all existing registrations must be 
made at the beginning of each college year. 

6. The major work of the candidate must be undertaken in some department in 
which there have been completed undergraduate courses of study of such advanced 

[ 37 ] 






grade as to satisfy the department of the student’s fitness to enter upon graduate work. 

7. In advance of registration candidates for the Master’s degree shall present to 
the Committee on Graduate Work for its approval a statement of the intended course 
of study, with the written approval of the head of the department in which the major 
work is to be undertaken. 

8. All applications to raise undergraduate courses to graduate level should be pre- 
sented, with statements covering the additional work involved, to the Graduate 
Committee before the end of the registration period. No student will be permitted 
to register in such courses without the written approval of the Chairman of the Grad' 
uate Committee to the head of the department concerned. 

9. Two-thirds of the required work must consist of graduate courses in the depart¬ 
ment of the major; the remaining one-third may consist of cognate courses of graduate 
grade prescribed by the department in which the major work is undertaken. A 
minimum grade of 80 per cent shall be maintained in all courses counting towards the 
degree. 

10. Graduates of Middlebury College who have to their credit graduate courses 
taken in undergraduate years and not counted toward the baccalaureate degree may, 
subject to the approval of the head of the department concerned, count ten semester 
hours toward an advanced degree, provided these courses are in subjects related to 
the department in which the major work for the advanced degree is to be done. 
Subject to the same requirements, graduates of other recognized colleges may count 
toward the Middlebury degree ten semester hours of graduate courses completed in 
undergraduate years and not counted toward the baccalaureate degree. 

11. No courses counted in conferring a first degree at Middlebury College, or 
elsewhere, shall be accepted for a second degree. 

12. A Senior who has satisfied all the requirements for the baccalaureate degree 
at the end of the first semester may continue his study towards the Master’s degree 
during the second semester. Such a student shall be considered a graduate student and 
his program of study must conform to the regulations governing graduate work. 

13. The degree shall be conferred either at the Commencement or at the Summer 
Session following the completion of the work. 

14. The regular tuition fees for undergraduate work are charged. An additional 
fee of $15 is required for the final examination and the diploma. 

15. Under certain conditions, the following departments will offer graduate 
work. Prospective candidates should in each case correspond directly with the head 
of the department concerning specific details: American Literature, Economics, 
English, German, History, Latin, Mathematics, Music, Philosophy, Physics, Political 
Science, Sociology, and Spanish. 

THE DOCTORATE IN MODERN LANGUAGES 

Besides the Master’s degree, the Middlebury Summer Schools of French, Spanish, 
and German now offer an advanced degree: The Doctorate in Modern Languages 
(D.M.L.), full details concerning which may be found in the Summer School 
bulletins of the Schools concerned. The principal requirements are: 

1. The Master’s degree with a language major from some recognized university. 

2. Residence at the Summer Sessions of Middlebury College equivalent to five 

[38] 



year courses of thirty credits. This will ordinarily require four summers’ residence 
at Middlebury, but the basis of the requirement is chiefly the fulfillment of a program, 
not merely a given total of points. The student will be required to complete the main 
lines or groups of our curriculum—Stylistics, Phonetics, Realia, Teaching Methods, 
Literature, and Philology. A minimum of twenty credits over and above the credits 
necessary for the M. A. must be secured in residence at Middlebury; a maximum of ten 
credits may be transferred. 

3. Two semesters’ residence in a foreign country of the major language. This time 
should be spent in study in approved courses amounting to or equivalent to twelve 
hours a week (or 24 semester hours) of class exercises. The work must be done ac' 
cording to a plan previously approved by the Dean of the respective School, and the 
final results must also be approved by him. Work done in a foreign country prior to 
the student’s enrollment as a candidate for the D.M.L. cannot be accepted. Summer 
Sessions may not be substituted for the requirement of two semesters’ foreign 
residence. 

4. A major language (French, Spanish, or German). 

a. A thorough knowledge of and the ability to use the spoken and written 
language, tested by an oral and written examination. 

b. A thorough study of and training in phonetics. Candidates will be required 
to do at least one summer’s work in the phonetics laboratory, and to write a report 
on their research. 

c. A scientific study of modem methods of teaching foreign languages. Note: 
Besides attendance in the courses of methods at Middlebury, candidates will be 
required to teach at least one year under supervision. Statements will be requested 
from superintendents of schools, heads of departments, and others as to the success 
of the candidate’s teaching and professional ability. No student will be granted the 
D.M.L. who cannot be unqualifiedly recommended as an experienced and success' 
ful teacher of the language. 

5. A final oral examination conducted entirely in the major language, before a 
board including native members of the faculty; this examination to cover all elements 
of the candidate’s preparation—phonetics, pedagogy, literature, etc. (This training 
should include a certain amount of philological preparation—Old French or Old 
Spanish, Phonology, Morphology, etc., but these subjects should be studied not in sc 
and per se } but always with the idea of the help they may afford to the knowledge and 
teaching of the modern languages.) 

6. A minor language (perferably another Romance Language). This will be tested 
by an oral and written examination. The candidate’s knowledge of the language 
should be sufficient at least to teach successfully the elementary courses in the 
language. In addition, a reading knowledge of German will be required, as a guaran' 
tee of the ability to use German texts or editions. 

7. A dissertation written in the major language. This dissertation, which should 
approximate 35,000 words, is intended to prove a thorough and understanding study 
of some subject, literary, phonetic, or pedagogical, which is worth a careful study. 
It must embody considerable original work and reflection, must show a mastery of the 
field, clearness of thought, and must be written in a correct and easy style. The subject 
must be chosen and the preparation continued under the guidance of some member of 
the Middlebury faculty.

Alumni 

Middlebury has approximately 2700 living alumni and 2000 alumnae. Business 
and educational work are their major occupations. Other leading occupations among 
the men, in order of importance are: Medicine, Law, Ministry, Engineering, Ac' 
counting, Agriculture, Chemistry, Government and Public Service, Advertising, 
Publicity, and Journalism. Leading alumnae occupations, beside Education and 
Business are: Library work, Social work, Medicine, Government and Public Service, 
Technology, Dietetics, Publicity, Accounting, and Music. Many alumni willingly 
contribute from their time and experience in offering vocational advice to under' 
graduates. 

The Associated Alumni, one of the oldest organizations of its type in America, was 
established in 1824. Curiously enough, it had its origin in the desire of graduates in 
various parts of the world to collect geologic specimens for a natural history museum 
at the College. But the aims of the Association were soon broadened to include all 
academic interests of the institution. Women graduates belonged to the same or' 
ganization until a separate Alumnae Association was formed in 1912. 

Annual business meetings are held during Commencement week at the College. 
Both groups are organized by districts, and regional meetings are held during the 
year. Although the purpose of these meetings is largely social, the members give 
active support in forwarding plans and projects of the Administration. Joint meet' 
ings of alumni and alumnae are held in many localities. In communities where the 
alumnae have separate organizations, meetings are held as frequently as once a 
month, when programs of educative and social interest are presented. 

The business of the Associated Alumni and Alumnae Association is conducted 
through the offices of the respective secretaries, Mr. Edgar J. Wiley, and Miss Lois 
Bestor. Biographical information and addresses may be secured through them. The 
offices publish a Directory of Alumni and Alumnae which is mailed upon request 
without charge. The Mews Letter, a Middlebury quarterly edited by W. Storrs Lee, 
is mailed to all alumni and alumnae. 

The following places are centers for alumni and alumnae activities: Montpelier and 
Rutland, Vermont; Boston, Springfield, and Worcester, Massachusetts; New Haven, 
Bridgeport, Waterbury, and Hartford, Connecticut; Keene and Concord, New 
Hampshire; Schenectady, Albany, Buffalo, Rochester, New York City, and Utica, 
New York; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Washington, D. C.; Chicago, Illinois; 
Cleveland and Akron, Ohio; Los Angeles, California; Milwaukee, Wisconsin. 

A complete list of current officers for these districts is given in the Appendix. 
Persons wishing to get in touch with a local graduate of the College may reach the 
officers at the addresses given.

Future Plans 

Traveling college presidents were about as common on the turnpikes of New 
England a century ago as traveling painters, dentists, surgeons, and transient pastors. 
Whether the wares were education, portraits, clinical service, or religion, each had 
to be an expert salesman, each a good horseman. Their success depended on a per¬ 
suasive vocabulary and endurance in the saddle. 

Much of the early success of Middlebury was created by this promotional gospel 
carried abroad on the presidential mare. In those days the total amount of tuition 
advanced by students was insignificant; heavy endowments were unknown. The 
College subsisted on a hand-to-mouth monetary diet, and the budget was made up on 
the returns which the president managed to deposit in his saddlebag within the tri¬ 
angle created by the three points: Middlebury, Boston, and New York. 

In this system of college up-keep there was no room for long-range planning. The 
College took what it could get and shaped itself accordingly. As the student body 
grew, the necessity for new buildings became all too obvious and always some 
public-minded individual came to the aid of the College. 

Middlebury has never been university-minded. Through nearly a century and a 
half the Corporation have commonly agreed that it should be a small College. A 
determination of four dimensions is essential to any long-range planning: enrollment, 
curriculum, buildings and equipment, staff. Recently a decision has been made that 
the eventual enrollment should not exceed 500 men and 500 women. With this 
dimension determined, the College has fixed the most essential dimensions for a 
long-range plan at Middlebury. 

The Corporation is fully cognizant of the truth that great teachers—not buildings 
—make a great college. The endowment of a professorship is probably the finest and 
most rewarding contribution an individual can make to a college. Few Middlebury 
professorships are endowed, as a survey of the list of faculty titles would indicate. 
The cost of such an endowment would approximate $100,000. 

For the most efficient operation of the two Colleges, the following physical 


additions are needed: 

Men’s Campus 

Starr Library Wings.$ 50,000 

Indoor Field. 150,000 

Old Chapel Reconstruction. 100,000 

Women’s Campus 

Dormitory. 250,000 

Recitation Hall. 150,000 

Gymnasium. 260,000 

Art or Music Center. 60,000 


Architectural and ground plans for future developments of both campuses have 
been completed. Forms of bequest for endowment, general and specific purposes are 
shown in the Appendix.
